The fully automatic fabric hood is lightweight and robust. It saves weight in just the right place and keeps the centre of gravity low. When stowed, the hood requires significantly less space than a folding hardtop. The glass rear screen is scratch-resistant and heated – to provide excellent rearward visibility. A rain channel on the hood reduces dripping when the doors are opened.
Electrically powered, the hood is opened using a button on the centre console or via the key remote.
The concertina action ensures optimum protection for the interior lining. The entire operation – be it opening or closing – takes approximately 20 seconds. For added convenience, the hood can be operated while the vehicle is travelling at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph).
The interior hood lining is made from a sound and heat-insulating fabric. The resulting noise levels are astonishingly low, even when travelling at high speed. Ensuring you hear almost nothing – apart from that typical Porsche sound.
The 911 Turbo Cabriolet and the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet come with a detachable wind deflector as standard. Developed in the Porsche wind tunnel, it reduces turbulence and noise at high speed. It is easy to fit and can be folded and stowed in the luggage compartment.
Optional equipment includes a tough and lightweight aluminium hardtop which is also easy to fit. The interior is lined with a sound-absorbent fabric that complements the passenger compartment.
